BlurbDÃ¼rrenmatt once wrote of himself: I can best be understood if one grasps grotesqueness,â and The Visit is a consummate, alarming DÃ¼rrenmatt blend of hilarity, horror, and vertigo. The play takes place somewhere in Central Europeâ and tells of an elderly millionairess who, merely on the promise of her millions, swiftly turns a depressed area into a boom town. But the condition attached to her largesse, which the locals learn of only after they are enmeshed, is murder. DÃ¼rrenmatt has fashioned a macabre and entertaining parable that is a scathing indictment of the power of greed.
